Learning Objectives

  • Indication and results of minimally invasive mitral valve repair
  • Patient selection
  • Surgical repair techniques
  • Complications
  • Gain familiarity and knowledge in instrumental necessities for endoscopic mitral valve repair
  • Practice and learn the basic techniques in endoscopic surgery for mitral valve repair on high-fildelity simulators
  • Mitral valve repair using annuloplasty ring and neochords on high-fidelity simulators

Course Fee
495 Euro (includes course material, breaks and lunch beverages)

Specifics of the simulators

  • True simulated physical model of endoscopic port-access set-up whereby the operator can train from the basic technique to full complex repairs
  • Disposable mitral valves and papillary muscles that have been created out of material resembling the physical characteristics of connective tissue giving the operator true experience
  • Simulator can give feedback about the length and depth of each stich on mitral valve annulus with picture of each created stich. The operator can train his/her skills based on pre-set parameters of length and depth

DELEGATE TESTIMONIALS
The course fulfilled completely my expectations, and it went even further more.

Both the theory talks (given mostly by the course Director, Dott Peyman Sardari) and the hands-on sessions on the simulator have been outstanding.

I truly and heartily recommend this course even to experienced surgeons.
